    A little disappointed

    Shipping and bike appearance was good. The derailleur was out of adjustment causing the chain to come off into the spokes, when shifting to 1st gear. Not a huge deal but very disappointing for my granddaughter who was excited to ride.

    Hi Ronald, Thank you for letting us know. Please send us an email at [email protected]. We will cover the cost to repair the derailleur. Your bike comes with a comprehensive warranty. We are here for you. Have a great day!

    Too small for Age recs

    Ordered the 10-14 year old bike for my 11 year old. It is a tiny bike that is already too small for him. It’s well made but sizing is way off. Originally it arrived without pedals and he was so disappointed not to be able to use it right away. Customer service quickly sent some, and he can ride the bike but it’s ridiculously small for him already. It’s more suited to my 7 year old.

    Hi Kt, Our 26 inch bike has a height range of 54 - 64 inches. Please email us your child's height to [email protected]. We are happy to double check sizing. :)

    Fair to Middlin'

    We have several guardian bikes, and have been satisfied with the quality of the product. We wish the components were made in a country other than China specifically due to their human rights violations. Our most recent bike arrived damaged as well, which is frustrating for such an investment.

    Hi! Thanks so much for your feedback. Every Guardian Bike should arrive in tip-top shape. It sounds like the box was mishandled in transit. Please let us know some more details about the damage so we can get you taken care of! -Laura @Gurdian Bikes
